What to Look for in Breast Augmentation Before-and-After Photos

Want a Better Bikini Body by Summer?

The calendar says April, but it’s never too soon to start thinking about summer (i.e., bathing suit season). If your body isn’t in the shape you’d like, consider cosmetic enhancement with Dr. Erwin Bulan. It is critical to plan any cosmetic treatment well in advance, to allow yourself enough time to recover comfortably before hitting the shore or the pool in your backyard.

Here, Dr. Bulan discusses widespread bikini body concerns, and explains how he treats them at his Northern New Jersey plastic surgery practice.

Areas of Surplus Fat

Problem: A prevalent beach body concern is areas of excess fat that bulge unattractively from underneath a swimsuit.
Solution: Liposuction is the traditional method of treatment for surplus fat. The more advanced alternative is laser-assisted liposuction with Smartlipo technology. Smartlipo enables Dr. Bulan to remove unwanted fat and expertly sculpt the body’s contours for a more attractive physique. Smartlipo is gentler on the body’s tissues and gives the treated area a smoother shape. Dr. Bulan can perform laser-assisted liposuction treatment on the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks or upper arms.

Pesky Cellulite

Problem: Another common aesthetic concern is the appearance of cellulite (i.e., dimply, puckered skin on the legs, buttocks or abdomen). The structure of cellulite is different from fatty tissue. Cellulite appears when the connective tissues tighten and trap pockets of fat. This combination tugs on the overlying skin, giving the skin a lumpy and dimpled look.
Solution: Instead of treating cellulite with traditional fat reduction methods such as Smartlipo, Dr. Bulan offers cellulite reduction with the revolutionary Accent radiofrequency treatment. The radiofrequency energy loosens the connective tissue, breaks up surplus fat and produces more collagen for smooth, healthy looking skin.

Loose Bikini Tops

Problem: Breasts that are small, asymmetrical or extremely saggy will not fill out a bikini top in a flattering way. Skimpy bikini tops can even accentuate the aesthetic concerns a woman has with her breasts.
Solution: Breast augmentation with implants adds volume and shape to naturally small breasts, whereas breast lift restores saggy breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. Dr. Bulan may recommend combining breast implants and breast lift if both the size and position of a woman’s breasts are problematic.

Unwanted Hair and Stubble

Problem: Body hair removal is a particularly time-consuming, tedious task during the summer months. In some cases, repeatedly shaving the same area can cause irritation and rashes.
Solution: Laser hair removal treatment will permanently banish unwanted hair from the legs, arms, face and bikini area. Patients must be mindful of the timing, as it usually takes a series of treatments to achieve smooth, hair-free results.
